Abstract

It is well documented that under certain stimuli the bladder epithelium can undergo metaplasia. The origin of glandular epithelium, which may be found in the bladder, is somewhat controversial. Endoscopic and histopathologic features of an eighty-one-year-old white man with proliferative metaplastic cystitis are presented. This case demonstrates that glandular differentiation was due to progressive cystitis rather than congenital intestinal rest.
